Whether new construction or remodeling, dual owner’s suites and independent in-law suites are increasingly in demand. Interestingly, about the time their kids move out, a significant number of homeowners find themselves moving a parent in.

Homes designed with a pair of adjoining secondary bedrooms, such as the McAllister (plan #42027, above), near the entry are often ideal candidates for an in-law suite. If your mom or dad likes to get together with friends, perhaps one of the secondary bedrooms is well-suited to be a parlor – their own private living room for entertaining! The addition of a small kitchenette in this space would create almost an independent living arrangement.

Another intelligent arrangement for live-in relatives is having the owner’s suites on opposite sides of the home, providing a more independent living space. The second owner’s suite in the Cedar Glen II (plan #42229, above) is located off the front of the house where the front entrance can serve as a “private” entrance rather than the family entrance through the garage.
